Guess the Filing Date Contest Launches

U.S. Bankruptcy Court - The Destination for Detroit
It's painfully obvious that the City of Detroit is on a collision course with bankruptcy. Since there isn't much that any of us can really do about it, unless you happen to have a few billion dollars in cash lying around, I am hereby launching the "Guess the Filing Date Contest."

Enter your guess in the comments section below as to the exact date when the City of Detroit will file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection. The guess closest to the actual filing date wins lunch with me at your choice a fine dining establishments in the Warrendale neighborhood, such as 3 Nicks, Chick's Bar, Gracie See Pizzeria, J.S. Fields, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, or any of the other fine options in Warrendale.

Entries will also be accepted on the Facebook page for this blog, via email, or in person if you happen to see me at any of these establishments between now and when Kevyn Orr finally moves forward with a bankruptcy filing.

Update @ 7:48 p.m.
In response to a reader question, I'm going to decree that only one entry will be accepted per person for this contest.

Also, since there are multiple ways in which someone may enter this contest (Facebook, Google Plus, email, in person, or by leaving a comment), I will also rule that if more than one person guesses a certain date, the first person to guess a given date said shall have the rights to it. I someone has already guessed your date, I will let you know so you can pick another date.

This contest will expire as soon as the City of Detroit files for bankruptcy protection. The prize has no cash value, but it may be transferred to another person (for the benefit of all of my readers who live outside of the Detroit area and who may want to give it to a friend or relative who still lives here).

Any other issues arising from these rules, shall be subject to the decision of the guy who is giving away the free lunch.
